Forum: etree Subject: Re: Someone else 'Remastering' as show and uploading it to the LMA as a new seed ... out of line? .. acceptable practice?

At the end of the day, the music on the archive is free.

True, but servers cost money. Bandwidth costs money. Engineers need to be paid. Just because the end users / visitors to the library (us) do not pay for it, doesn't mean all this just happens ... It takes a lot of money to keep archive.org up, running, and growing. Allowing things like these remasters to use space (potentially a lot of it) seems wasteful for the money that the archive should be using on bandwidth / disk space for fresh shows / sources.

I could care less what others do to my recordings, my beef is with taking up space on the LMA unecessarily.
